Temperance 2 - Mocha Micarta / PlainEdge
Primed and ready for harsh cutting. If you’re looking for a small benign fixed blade, this is not what you seek. Basic chores from fingernail maintenance to fishing would be better serviced with a lesser blade but if you’re traipsing about forest or field this has your name all over it. The Temperance’s leaf shaped VG-10 stainless blade is full flat-ground all the way to the cutting edge. The blade is also double-distal tapered (tapered vertically from the spine to the sharp edge and additionally tapered horizontally from tip to tang). Double tapering reduces resistance and friction while the blade passes through something during cutting, penetrating or slicing. In judging overall performance, equally important as the blade is the handle. Temperance2’s three-dimensional mocha-colored canvas Micarta handle has flaring expansions at the pommel. These double as a hand guard and keep the blade slip-proof and rooted while cutting in a forward or backward grip. A skeletonized tang runs the full length of the handle. Temperance2 comes in a fitted Boltaron sheath with G-Clip attachment system allowing you to clip it vertically, horizontally, in the small of back or to strap, belt or pack.
